When we were contacted by the Executive Director of the Aldridge Early Learning Center in East Moline about updating their website, we jumped at the chance to work with them.
We had worked with a few nonprofit organizations before but never with a Child Care facility. We asked a lot of questions and took a tour of the facility and then went to work creating their new website. We think it turned out great and we enjoyed the process.
About Aldridge Center
The Aldridge Early Learning Center is a growing daycare center located in East Moline, Illinois. For many years it was East Moline’s only licensed childcare center. Opening in early 1980, the center had been the vision of Mrs. Florence Aldridge.
For many years Mrs. Aldridge worked with elected officials to secure state and federal funds to build the Center. She gained the support of then East Moline Mayor Denny Jacobs, who was amazed at how persistent Mrs. Aldridge was.
The childcare center opened with a licensed capacity of 27 children. Over the next few years the center established itself as being a viable part of the community. With the demand for childcare increasing, so did the center’s licensed capacity. The growth of the daycare program resulted in the need for more space.
In February 2004 their new childcare facility opened and the name changed from the Florence Aldridge Child Development Center to the Aldridge Early Learning Center.
They are currently licensed (by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services) to serve 151 children ages 6 weeks through 12 years.
